01:44:39
I love the Frankly in Love cover so much
brucefoster
01:44:54
Second that
Diandra Mae
01:45:47
Fake relationships are one of my reader catnip. Can’t wait to try Frankly in Love.
Mary Riser
01:46:40
Any nonfiction PB impress you?
Varsha Bajaj
01:48:12
Do you put Count Me In in MG?
Diandra Mae
01:48:25
There is a pretty big gap in upper middle grade/lower YA. Not much for 12 yr old readers who aren’t quite ready for explicit plots.
Carmela Simmons
01:50:42
Yes, know the reader!
houston-ra@scbwi.org
01:51:59
I’m going to hop off now. Thanks Cathy for the excellent talk! Enjoy the rest of the meeting, all
Diandra Mae
01:52:46
Night, Meghan!
Laelia Watt
01:53:08
I'm so curious about YA/MG memoir- My degree is in creative nonfiction, but we studied only work for adults. I've always wanted to write children's books, but I never even thought of writing in the genre I studied! This is food for thought for me. Is that genre common in YA and I just never put it together?
Silver Milagro
01:54:43
Can you tell us a little about how you feel the landscape of bookselling changed over the last month? How do you see the landscape going forward?
Rebecca Aguilar
01:55:11
Wow!
Varsha Bajaj
01:56:20
do the think the digital arc trend will continue?
